Don't worry, be happy - No. 4

Here’s a reminder for this week. To keep in mind and to learn a little of, if only a little:

All week I've been running around being busy busy busy... And that one day I didn't have anything important to do I felt restless.
Because there were so many things on my to-do-list and my (as mentioned in my previous post about pallet love:) I will one day, definitely soon-ish make this-list. So the entire day I felt guilty for doing nothing, whereby I didn't even do nothing that day: I was just running around, about to do something that was on some to-do-list but then I didn't do it. Still following? Well I wasn't. So I put myself in front of a mirror and I strictly said to myself about twenty times that it was okay to have a lazy day today. And it really helped. I didn't do anything, at least nothing I had to do. I just enjoyed my day of nothingness and relaxation. So, to save your day and your peace, it's okay to have a lazy day every once in a while. It makes the next day more productive.


Lessons are taught every day. Lessons are learned on occasion… 
Not everyone likes to be taught a lesson, not every lesson is learned. Every person can tell you to enjoy life, to seize the day, to follow your heart and that it is as it is. But do you listen? Do you have those lessons in mind when you wake up at six in the morning by your alarm on a gray and rainy day, and open your eyes to go to work again? When everything that can go wrong on one day goes completely wrong? When you seem to have lost that happy-feeling for a while?

Well I don’t, so I need to be reminded of those lessons. Call me stubborn, but I need it. Every time a life-lesson is taught to you, you think ‘yes, I know…’, but you do smile a little just because you know it’s true. And that message sticks with you for a while. 
So to make you smile, to let you say ‘I know…’ and to let a little life-lesson stick with you for a while, I thought it would be nice to send out a weekly reminder. For myself, because it helps, and for anyone who needs a reminder too.
